Question

According to the Association of Event Organisers, the trade association representing the organisations responsible for over 75% of the UK consumer and trade events annually, your decision to back the Earl's Court demolition proposals 'highlights a blinkered and biased perspective, without proper and educated consideration of the longer term, detrimental effects this will have for the UK exhibitions and events industry and the UK economy as a whole'. Given these views from the very businesses you claim to serve do you regret not heeding the call to defer you decision until an independent study on the economic effects of the loss of the exhibition space had been completed?
